The character of the Chinese economic model is changing. Since the beginning of China’s economic reforms, growth has been driven by investment and exports. Growth in “New China” will be driven by domestic consumption, including service industries like retail, domestic transportation, travel, leisure and health care. Or at least that is the plan.

One area were personal consumption has grown particularly fast is within smartphones. A recent study by mobile research firm Flurry Analytics showed that China has overtaken the United States as the country where most Android and iOS (the two main smartphone platforms) devices were activated.

Our estimate puts the total number of iPhones and iPads in China at end of 2011 at 21 million active devices, distributed as follows:
